Horses & livestock

stalls mucked, turn out/bring in, fly spray and maintenance grooming

Horse, feeding only
This includes feeding one meal and refilling water buckets. If your horse was
turned out on the full care visit, it also includes returning them to their stall

Sheep, Goats, Llamas, Cows and Other Livestock
Please contact us to tell us about how many animals you care for and what their needs are. Usually these companions do not have individual stalls that need to be cleaned so we do not charge as much per companion for full care. We will provide you with a personalized quote.

Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's Eve

Routine watering for plants is free of charge when we are caring for your animal companions. However, please contact us if you have a special request with regard to plants. We can provide you with a personalized quote to care only for plants during your absence.
